About this Investigator

Clinical cancer/cancer health disparities research with focus on improving patient safety for older individuals with cancer. I am primarily engaged in active pharmacovigilance, including the detection and assessment of safety signals related to drugs and devices and the timely dissemination of findings to relevant stakeholders. A related research focus is comparative and cost effectiveness analyses of cancer related therapies targeted at older cancer patients and safe and cost-effective transitions of care for this cohort. I am also engaged in a collaborative NCI sponsored minority biobanking/biospecimen collection initiative with colleagues at several comprehensive cancer centers across the country. Future studies in pharmacogenomics are expected to aid in prescribing decisions and will likely predict older cancer patients who will respond appropriately to a given cancer-related medication or experience severe adverse drug reactions.
